Diner Reviews
  • "For a specialty seafood restaurant, their seafood is not the freshest or most local, this is due to their purchasing format as they are limited to the main generic suppliers which limits them from being able to provide the most freshest & local ingredients. Sad, seems to be the way of the world.....but for the general public...ignorance is bliss."

  • "My wife was very disappointed in the fish tacos. There was very little fish or other filling in the tacos, which were very bland and unsatisfying. Not sure, but maybe they missed a few key ingredients?"

  • "Good food. Slow service when busy. We enjoyed food but service was slow due to busy period. The Waiter spilled sauce on my wife's dress and while apologized didn't offer any consideration. View is great by water. Nice energy if you like that kind of thing."

  • "A bad way to start your night when there is no parking available even the restaurant was half full. Parked almost 1km away. Food is always quite good. Service was quite slow this time unfortunately."

  • "Have eaten here a lot over the past few years and have never been disappointed…until my last visit. Service was beyond slow and the food was sub par. Salmon was over cooked and I found a hair in my crab cakes. Took over 20 mins to get our drinks."

  • "Boathouse Port Moody is a great fine dining restaurant in the Tri City area. The views and ambience are fantastic. We went for our Anniversary and found the food and service very good. We had crab dip as an appy which was delicious - wish we had a bit more since we had more crackers than dip in the end. Both my wife and I ordered the Steak with Crab (me) and Lobster tail (wife). It also came with broccolini and mashed potatoes. I love my steak and crab and found it even better than her lobster. They were the most expensive items on the menu but it was a special night. I had the Molten brownie lava cake for dessert and loved it -next time I will add more ice cream - the little scoop is just not enough for such a delicious treat."

  • "Food is nothing special, only the location. Had oysters, quite good....and the seafood appetizer platter which was okay. We only go for the views and because it's walking distance for us."

  • "I had a great dinner there last week with my family. We were all impressed with the server. (so personable and fun) We always go to the boathouse for special occassions and it is perfect every single time. Thank you!"

  • "The view is lovely but that really is what you are paying for when you dine at the Boathouse Port Moody. The food was below average - everyone in our party (7) had complaints (a few examples: overcooked meat, warm drinks, a replacement dinner taking 20 minutes). We are not people who usually complain. We will never dine at this location again. Seriously, there are just too many other restaurant options in the lower mainland with great food, service and views. I wish I had read the reviews online before booking - they say similar things to what we experienced. The Boathouse Port Moody needs to work on their food, service and customer care, but honestly, I don't think they care! They are simply counting on people going there for the view."

  • "It was my parents 67th wedding anniversary, the setting was great, it does get very noisy as the restaurant fills up, that would be my only complaint, I was also soup prizes they didn't offer my parents a special desert or appy because of the occasion, to be fair we didn't give them much notice, love eating tree the food is always awesome"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Overall, the experience was average. This time we went on Father's Day. The restaurant was very busy and we hardly got any time with our server. He took our order, another server served us our dishes. The original server came back once to check on us. It was a 2-hour plus dinner for 4 people. Plus there were a couple of mistakes with our order, which didn't happen before when we went on a non-holiday. We'd recommend not coming here on a holiday."

  • "The boathouse is one of my favorite seafood restaurants so it's always good. I tried the mussels and crab-stuffed shrimp this time and both were very tasty. It's always a bit noisy in there, but that's because it's a popular place and it's usually full of groups and families. As I said, it's always good so I'll be back again soon enough."

  • "Our server, Ashley, really made our night out there. I was there to celebrate, and she knew how to work our group so well. Even when one member of our party had repeated problems with her dish, she was so patient and did everything she could to ensure the night went smoothly. Meals all around were tasty, and Ashley provided us with great suggestions, feedback and honest opinions about our orders. Thank you Ashley! I also need to add a thank you to the hostess staff. My original reservation changed TWICE since I first made it: once was the # and the second was the time, as the event we were celebrating ran long. Most places we would lose the reservation, but even on a crazy busy Friday night, the Boathouse staff made it work. Thank you!"

  • "We were there for a special occasion (Mom's 85th birthday) and had a great table out on the patio and the weather was terrific. We decided to have all our food at once rather than in stages but it took quite a while and when they finally served our food we had to remind them that a couple of the meals were missing. Drink orders took a while also. Then my youngest son (who never gets dessert) ordered a dessert to go so he could eat it later (Chocolate Brownie concoction) and it was listed on the bill but never arrived even though there was plenty of time between ordering it, getting the bill and paying the bill. We unfortunately forgot about it until we had driven away so that was $8.99 wasted."

  • "This place is great and as a Landry's member I visit the Chart House, Morton's, Schmicks, Salt Grass among others. Locally this is one of my favourite spots, however the service Saturday was not impressive. Not the servers fault, but it was packed and I feel you should get similar service on a Saturday as you do on a Monday. Hire more people during peak times to advertise the brand and get people coming more frequently. Just a nice dinner for us ... But a bit off. I will be back but hopefully this was an anomalie .. FYI I request patio, I understand its hard to guarantee there was a wait but my Landry's card didn't mean much. I also asked about the Presidents Club card and was told a manager would come to my table, he never came..."

  • "We decided to go to the Boathouse Port Moody due to their weekday 3 to 6 P.M. meal promotion. We found the service scattered and slow with staff seemingly not working together. It was hard to talk amongst ourselves at our table as it was noisy and the background "music" in the restaurant was loud repetitive bass sounds set on repeat. The food portions were small and nothing spectacular. We had to check our bill very carefully as the promotional pricing wasn't automatically going through. We noticed other people at tables directly around us sending their food back and complaining about overcharges too. "

  • "Our group has dined at the Boathouse Port Moody many times, and the last 2 have been less than the usual level of service\ food quality than before. Our experience this past Friday was unsatisfactory. Our server was personable but did not give us the specials, bring a requested drink item, bring a bread basket until asked, and just overall did not seem to be "into it". The open kitchen was excessively noisy (pans being dropped, glasses or dishes being dropped\smashed) I won't mention the parking issue at the restaurant (they have done away with Valet service). One guest had Halibut and Chips which were greasy and the fries cold. Another guest had a steak and server forgot the steak knife. We hope they get this location back on track. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "My wife dinner, the grilled Halibut, arrived - not hot. It took a few minutes to get the waiter's attention. He took it away. We expected him to just nuke it a half minute and return - instead he said they were doing a new meal. Meanwhile I am eating and my wife is watching - very unpleasant. After several minutes we asked for the manager and he explained again what was going on. I voiced our displeasure - indicating this was not a fault of the kitchen but of the service. He said there would be no bill and apologized for the service. We left."

  • "Considering the price, the food was disappointing. Sturgeon 1st try was dry, second try partially uncooked. portions good size. Service was excellent though. Couldn't find parking, only once in the restaurant did we see a notice about complementary valet service parking. "

  • "Went to this same restaurant about a year ago and would of rated everything much higher. This time around the experience was poor. The alcoholic cocktails we ordered tasted horrible and the food tasted pretty bad. We had to take one of the drinks back and re-order. The food order arrive in decent time however was not very well prepared. The fish was very dry and the seafood was over- seasoned. My waiter was terrific but I felt bad for him as our neighbouring table was complaining to him and then his manager about the same issues I had with the food quality. My wife and I love going to seafood restaurants such as Sandbar and blue water. The quality here was not even close to the above restaurants and they charge about the same prices. "

  • "Good food, a little pricey, but I knew that going in. If you go during the summer, the patio is a great place, it's heated and all covered. however, my meal was interrupted by the persistent sunlight shining right into my eyes. Very annoying."

  • "Boathouse used to be great, but the last few times we have gone we have ended up disappointed. The crab dip was runny and the pita chips it came with were stale. We mentioned this to our waitress, but she didn't seem interested in our issue. My daughter fish & chips were over battered and under cooked. I had the lobster grilled cheese benny and it wasn't worth the 18.99 price tag. Overall the best thing we had were the bellini's and how hard is it to mess those up? In the futer when we visit Rocky Point we will hit up Pajos and save the dollars."

  • "We decided to go to the boat house because of the special early dinner special. Turns out it wasn't a special because it is less portion anyway. This was not mention on the ad. We don't mind paying for more but it ruined my mood and so we had a snack and went out to eat at another place later on. Misleading advertisement. My daughter didn't like the noodle and cheese so we took her to eat elsewhere. However I really like the atmosphere at the boat house. Hopefully the good will be better next time. My steak was served cold. "

  • "For the prices the Boathouse charges I would rate this restaurant average. Your coffee at $3.89 a cup is very overpriced...if your price was on the menu we would not have ordered coffee. I can go to Browns and have some delicious halibut, less expensive wine and less expensive coffee and great ambiance. The Boathouse is in a wonderful location, the service was good and the staff friendly. If the prices were better we would probably frequent your restaurant more. "

  • "Food was good. Service by waiter and hostess was great. Noise level on a Friday night was very high. We would return probably prefer lunch We enjoyed the location and went for a nice walk on pier. Parking can be a bit of hassle"
